Presumably this means m68k doesn't have any chance of getting the
libc6 dependency fixed then. 

Perhaps a better thing to do would be to just recompile for i386 only,
and do binary-only point releases for affected packages, ie,

	$ cd package-3.14
	$ debchange -v
		# frozen, "binary-only / recompile to fix libc6 dependency"
	$ build -b -rfakeroot
	$ cd ..
	$ dupload -t master whatever.changes
